Earlier this month, Xiaomi unveiled the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and Redmi K30 Ultra to celebrate its tenth anniversary. The Mi 10 Ultra was what fans of good hardware expected. In addition, the device came with an advanced camera setup that quickly mastered DxOMark charts. Xiaomi is proud of this achievement and decided to give in-depth details of the technology behind the camera.
For starters, the main camera carries a 48MP 1 / 1.32 capable sensor capable of doing HDR processing of a single-frame frame. This camera basically says that sometimes you do not need a huge sensor to get the best shots. Pixels here are grouped into three categories: small, medium and large exposure. These merge into an HDR signal as the sensor reads the image of each line. It is worth noting that the Mi 10 Ultra is the first smartphone to record HDR10 video thanks to sensor processing. The device also packs an 8P lens design which is an eight-element lens. This helps the camera reduce image distortions. Every element of the camera makes it more difficult to develop and cost.
The developers also said that achieving the best possible results with Telephoto was also a challenge. It is a 48MP camera with IMX586 sensors. However, it is very large – 1 / 2.32 ″. Xiaomi had to use a D-cut lens to slim down the unit since it fits inside the device. D-Cut lenses make it more difficult to stabilize the visual image. However, after several repetitions and tests, the company managed to adapt everything perfectly.
The Ultra-Wide angle lens has a field of view of 128 degrees. It uses a 7P lens again to minimize distortion, especially around the edges. It also works to reduce a possible vignette effect. When the company reduces lens distortion it also improves the resolution. The software adjusts the remaining details.
According to the report, Xiaomi used the most research and development teams in the world. The teams in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Najing, Tokyo, Santiago, Bengaluru, Paris and Tampere worked hard to improve the hardware and software of this result. The Mi 10 Ultra is nothing more than the result of the company’s hard work to provide advanced technologies.
